Ada Calhoun’s ‘Also a Poet: Frank O’Hara, My Father, and Me’

Peter Schjeldahl’s memorial essay on Frank O’Hara appeared in the August 13, 1966, issue of the Village Voice.

Reporter Rafael Alvarez reviews artist Ada Calhoun’s ‘Also a Poet: Frank O’Hara, My Father, and Me’ in his latest piece for the Village Voice, and includes an interview with the author. The book is a biography of beloved poet Frank O’Hara from the viewpoint of what his work meant to Calhoun and her father. 

“When the writer—daughter of renowned art critic Peter Schjeldahl—found a stash of cassette tapes, she opened a window to an era,” writes Alvarez.
